We on the right were apparently near enough to have reachedeems that Gen. Forrest had attacked them on the mountain at Day's gap with a part of his command and with the section of Freeman's Battery, and had been repulsed with the loss of Freeman's guns and a number of men.

When we arrived the command immediately moved forward up the mountain, and on reaching the top our line was formed, and we moved forward. We soon came to the line of the Yankees, who gave us a heavy vo we went. We pressed them so closely that day that late in the evening they abandoned the guns that they had taken from Freeman.

Colonel Powers then established his headquarters at Freeman's plantation, on the Clinton and Port Hudson road, keeping strong scouting parties in front to watch Grierson and the movements of the enemy.

The wagons were then brought back with the prisoners to Freeman's, and next day, under a guard, sent to Johnson's Army at Jackson, Miss. May 2, 1863, a courier from the front rode up to Colonel Power's headquarters and imparteas encamped three miles away, appeared in line, with skirmishers thrown out in advance. Colonel Powers having accomplished his object, retraced his steps back to Freeman's. Grierson did not follow. This brilliant affair resulted in the total destruction of an entire cavalry regiment, the taking of 700 prisoners, including the L

coutrements, such as they were, Enfield rifles, Belgian muskets, shotguns and what were called Mississippi rifles, probably because these guns were made in Nashville, Lebanon and various other towns. Early next morning the command moved toward Nashville on the Murfreesboro Pike a few miles, when our regiment turned to the left, crossed the railroad under the bridge over a dry branch and were formed in line behind a rail fence. On the other side of the fence was a stubble field, in which Freeman's Battery of six brass Howitzers was engaged in a lively duel with a Federal battery which was out of our sight beyond a slight rise. The men of the Federal battery evidently saw our line, for an occasional shot or shell passed over our heads among the tree tops. With the exception of frantic rearing and plunging of the new recruit horses, the men sat in their saddles like veterans, watching the actions of the artillerymen with absorbing interest. After about half an hour a Federal she

Historical papers Daniel O'Connell. In February, 1839, Henry Clay delivered a speech in the United States Senate, which was intended to smooth away the difficulties which his moderate opposition to the encroachments of slavery had erected in his path to the presidency. His calumniation of O'Connell called out the following summary of the career of the great Irish patriot. It was published originally in the Pennsylvania Freeman of Philadelphia, April 25, 1839. perhaps the most unlucky portion of the unlucky speech of Henry Clay on the slavery question is that in which an attempt is made to hold up to scorn and contempt the great Liberator of Ireland. We say an attempt, for who will say it has succeeded? Who feels contempt for O'Connell? Surely not the slaveholder? From Henry Clay, surrounded by his slave-gang at Ashland, to the most miserable and squalid slave-driver and small breeder of human cattle in Virginia and Maryland who can spell the name of O'Connell in his ne

of April. Granger, who had only five thousand infantry at Franklin, was on that day reinforced by Stanley's cavalry division, which had been sent for from Triune, whilst Smith's division, about twenty-five hundred horses strong, proceeded to take position at Brentwood. On the morning of the 10th, Van Dorn advances in two columns, taking the Columbia road with Jackson's division: Forrest's is on the right, along the Lewisburg road, Armstrong at the head, followed by Starnes' brigade and Freeman's battery at a distance of about two miles. Jackson, having arrived in front of a wood which covers the approaches to Franklin, meets with a stubborn resistance on the part of the Fortieth Ohio. The three hundred men of this regiment, who are waiting in vain for assistance or an order to retreat, keep his head of column for a long time in check, and it becomes necessary to deploy the whole division in order to compel them at last to fall back upon the outer dwellings of Franklin.

visions. An issue was thus made between Massachusetts and England, for that colony had, as we have seen, refused to be subject to the laws of parliament, and had remonstrated against such subjection, as the loss of English liberty. The Long Parliament had conceded the justice of the remonstrance. The judges, on the restoration, decreed otherwise, and asserted the legislative supremacy of parliament over the colonies without restriction. Such was the established common law of England.
